SHIPWRECKED CREW RESCUED BY A GODERICH VESSEL. -When the bark MAITLAND was on her last trip up the lakes, while crossing Lake Michigan, she discovered signals of distress on a vessel which proved to be the bark SUCCESS of Detroit about 30 miles above Milwaukee. Capt. McKenzie, of the MAITLAND, laid his vessel alongside, although there was a heavy sea running, and contrived to take on board all the crew of the Success, 11 in number. It seems that
the unfortunate vessel had shifted her cargo, while laboring in the sea. She sank in a few minutes after the crew were rescued from their extremely perilous condition. She was a fine new vessel, and had at the time 21,000 bushels of corn on board, bound for Buffalo. The men were landed at Chicago.
